Last week, I left you partway through my challenge for my local quilt guild. To learn more about the challenge, check this post from last week.
Next step was to fill in the gaps left around the edges. My son suggested using black both for those triangles and for the large corner setting triangles.
On the paper pattern I drew two lines corner to corner, dividing the block into four new triangles.
This next photo shows how the block would look as designed, and the third photo shows it's new appearance when I 'blew it out of the box'.
This piece currently measures about 28 1/2 inches across. It definitely needs at least one border if not two. I am thinking of searching for a fabric that has all three colours, though that might be tough unless I want to use Sponge Bob fabric. I would appreciate any suggestions for the border.
I don't know who did each piece as we remained anonymous for the viewer's choice voting.
The use of the mauve with the yellow and green is very striking. That runner won 3rd place. Oh, did I forget to tell you that my quilt won 2nd prize. Yippee.
Thanks for joining me for Needlework Tuesday and my mini challenge show.
Did you make progress on your needlework project this week, do you need some encouragement, leave a comment with a link to your post and I'll share it here with all my readers.
I was just over visiting Lady Penguin at her Knitting Knotebook blog, and she has finished the coolest cuffs. They are from a pattern 'Antique Alice in Wonderland Spats'.
